Oscar Isaac Says STAR WARS: EPISODE IX Handles Carrie Fisher's Leia in "a Really Beautiful Way"
It comes as no surprise to me that the set of Star Wars: Episode IX would feel vastly different than the last two films. For one, it’s the final entry in this sequel trilogy. For another, Carrie Fisher is not there shooting with them. Oscar Isaac talked to The Daily Beast recently about filming without Fisher and about having J.J. Abrams back on board as director.
It’s interesting how he describes the filming as “looser”, and I wonder if we the audience will be able to feel that. I wonder if it’s allowing more of the cast to contribute ideas to the film and vastly improve the quality.
In addition to Isaac and Fisher, Episode IX will star Naomi Ackie, John Boyega, Anthony Daniels, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Mark Hamill, Billie Lourd, Lupita Nyong’o, Daisy Ridley, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, and Billy Dee Williams.
I’m really excited to see what Abrams has planned for Episode IX, which is currently slated for release on December 20, 2019.
